My son had a couple of decrepit benches outside of his business. He ask if I would make him a couple to replace them with.
I use the design from Wood Magazine (Issue 170 – 2006).
I decided to use redwood rather than cedar. My experience with cedar here in Colorado has not been good – extreme shrinkage and checking. The framework is Con Com and the seat and back slats are B Grade. Finish is Cetol SRD Natural.

Thanks for looking

Your son will appreciate these very much, as will his clients. Nice work!
